Chaplin’s grandson, on the stage of the National Theatre

The actor, director, dancer and acrobat James Thiérrée, who is Charlie Chaplin’s grandson, brings, on the stage of the Bucharest National Theatre, his fourth creation, the play “Raoul”, in three presentations, on April 29 and 30 and on May 1. This is the first time the play is presented in Central and Eastern Europe, after touring several Eu­ro­pean countries, as well as the USA and Canada. Ac­cor­ding to “Evenimentul Zilei”, the show is already in the top 5 at the Bucharest box-office, competing with the likes of Bon Jovi, Bryan Ferry and Nigel Kennedy.

Thiér­rée studied acting at prestigious institutions, including the Piccolo Teatro in Milan, the Harvard Theatre School or the Na­tional Academy of Dramatic Arts in Paris. In 1998, he set up his own theatre company, La Compagnie du Hanne­ton. In 2007, he was nominated to the César Award for Best Actor, for his performance in “Désaccord parfait”.
